Cargill fires first shot in legal battle over GMO trade responsibility

Trading giant Cargill said in court documents on Friday that it had lost more than $90 million because Syngenta sold Agrisure Viptera corn, known as MIR 162, to U.S. farmers without first obtaining import approval from China, which has turned away boatloads of U.S. crops containing the variety over the past year. The lawsuit will be a test case of who is ultimately responsible for such rejections that damage international trade: the seed companies that develop unapproved GMO traits or the merchants who sell grain that may be contaminated with it.

Cargill sues Syngenta over China corn rejections

The move led to a series of rejections, from late 2013, by Chinese customs officials of cargos of US corn containing MIR 162 - a genetically modified trait cleared by Washington but not by Beijing. "Unlike other seed companies, Syngenta has not practiced responsible stewardship by broadly commercialising a new product before receiving approval from a key export market like China," said Mark Stonacek, the president of Cargill's North American grain and oilseed supply operations.
